Never had any complaints from my friends and family that I have driven behind and past about my low beams being blinding.

Everyone has their own facts about the HID and the housing. I am just saying you can still do it and it wont melt the housing, you wont mess anything up.

Just think how I make one valid point on how it is possible to run them with no issue and I get a bunch of junk about pretty much how I am stupid for what I am doing and being a road hazard and what not!

Thanks
Will, they work? Yes.

Is it right? No...

The guys aren't lying...do I really have to dig up the old thread? (walks away)

Hate to steal these from another member on here...but, this is a good demonstration of the difference.

vs same member's headlights with a TSX HID lense retro fit with d2s bulbs. (clear and a sharp cut off line)

It is a FACT that drop ins are bad for your lens, while also being dangerousness to others.
That is NOT an opinion.

Nobody called you stupid. We just differentiated fact (which is definitive and can be proven) from opinion. Your kits were poorly thought out purchases, but nobody insulted you and called you dumb. Nothing I've stated are "my own facts", because they are universal for everyone.

I don't mean to res a dead thread but I may have a solution for OP. If you are looking for more light or whiter/slightly bluer light Philips makes a bulb they call diamond vision ultra. It gives a very white light and the blue tip creates a bit of that HID blue/ rainbow effect around the cuttoffs. They also are rated at about 1800 Lumens vs the stock 1300 so they are considerably brighter. I picked up a set of their crystal white ultra bulbs this week because they were on closeout sale for $15, I installed them yesterday and they definitely throw a nice white HID style light.

Beware if you choose to use Brighter or Bluer headlights they do have a significantly reduced lifespan, in most cases your lucky if you get 18 months out of them. The $30 every year and a half seems OK to me.

They sell those Philip bulbs on Amazon pretty cheap, I bought highs, lows, and fog bulbs. I just bought the whiter ones myself and another member, @the RIOT act has the ones that arctiscythe mentioned, maybe he could post you a picture of his

Here are highs, lows, and fog bulb links on amazon. These will give that light blueish hue you want.

Amazon.com: Philips 9006 (HB4) Diamond Vision 5000K Ultimate White 12V 55W Light Bulbs (A Pair/Package): Automotive Amazon.com: Philips 9006 (HB4) Diamond Vision 5000K Ultimate White 12V 55W Light Bulbs (A Pair/Package): Automotive

Amazon.com: Philips - Diamond Vision H11 Halogen HID Super White 5000K (Pair): Automotive Amazon.com: Philips - Diamond Vision H11 Halogen HID Super White 5000K (Pair): Automotive



These links are for the crystal vision which are a whiter light and DO NOT have a blueish hue.

Philips 9006 CrystalVision Ultra Headlight Bulbs(Pack of 2) : Amazon.com : Automotive Philips 9006 CrystalVision Ultra Headlight Bulbs(Pack of 2) : Amazon.com : Automotive

Probably cheaper than hids and getting them retro fitted. You can search for cheaper prices. I just posted the first link I could find. I paid $10 for the high beam bulbs about a month ago for the Crystal visions. Really not that bad...

Do you or anyone else have an idea of actual stores that would carry the philips crystalvision and diamond vision. So i can just go and buy them myself not having to deal with shipping

I'm planning on going with the crystalvision on the high beams and diamondvision on the low beam and fogs
